High-Grade Analog Package: USA-Designed Music Hall Ikura Turntable Comes with Premounted Ortofon 2M Blue Cartridge, Dustcover, 45RPM Adapter
Great analog sound is like caviar—rich, enjoyable, luxurious. The Music Hall Ikura turntable, named after the Japanese term for highly desirable Salmon Roe eggs, awards listeners with its own sonic delicacies. The progressive ‘table is designed by famed industrial designer James Kyroudis and developed in the U.S.A. Its spectacular high-gloss, fully isolated double plinth comes in black or white with a cool, caviar-inspired pattern that symbolizes motion. A top-tier tonearm with a premounted Ortofon 2M Blue cartridge separates this complete analog bundle from the pack. Every part on this device is high-grade analog. You even get a dustcover and 45RPM adapter. Spin your favorite LPs, and bask in the wealth of gourmet aural delights.
"The Music Hall Ikura impressed me...[it's] good enough that if I had to live it as my only means of playing vinyl, I'd be quite happy...you may want to consider donating your old rig to a needy young audiophile and buying the Ikura!"
– Robert J. Reina, Stereophile
Everything gets a reworking here. A new top-tier tonearm gets wired with ultra-high-purity copper and includes a new offset anti-resonant counterweight. Ikura includes an expertly-aligned Ortofon 2M Blue with a nude-Elliptical stylus for incredible sonics. A fully-isolated DC synchronous motor with a two-speed pulley drives a platter that sits upon a noise-free, Teflon-coated stainless steel bearing. New adjustable feet for leveling and vibration dampening are, of course, included. Simple set-up comes standard on all Music Hall 'tables, as is a dustcover and a 45RPM adapter. This Music Hall makes a musical statement as powerful as its design.
